Good Evenin, enclosed is a pics of the proposed area where the walkway would be, length is about 26 and a half feet by 33inches wide and about 3 feet away from that water. My Major concern is all the water that seems to have settle right in along the stone wall / property line that drains off the adjoining lot down to the next lot. Keepin in mind this property is right along the coast of NH and we are in our spring 'coastal flooding' season the soil is at just about 100% saturation. I dug a test hole 12 inchs down 'n about 15 minutes i had a inch of water. I've done a little readin from other posts and a little from www.icpi.org and geotextile fabric might be to be the way to go. I'd like if time permits some advice on how to best build my base and create a good lookin no heave walk. Thank you.
